There are a handful of books that I read at least once a year. Patrick Lencioni’s Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive is on that short list. I learn something new every time I read it. It is one of my most marked-up books (both flyleaves are covered with notes and quotes). It is the perfect companion to Jim Collins’ Good to Great.
Want a sneak peak at the four obsessions? Here they are:
Build and maintain a cohesive leadership team
Create organizational clarity
Over-communicate organizational clarity
Reinforce organizational clarity through human systems
Why do I re-read it every year? Those four ideas always need reinforcement. If you’re in the business of learning how to be great at what you do…you’re missing out if you have not read The Four Obsessions.
